Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone!
I have spent this afternoon crafting, creating a Golden Wedding card that was commisioned . It involved using a lot of gilding flakes, which I love, but  always get in a bit of a mess with.
Pretty much self explanatory. Gilding flakes, Spellbinder dies, A4 embossing folder.
Right well now I'm off to do a bit of colouring while watching the box, not that there is much worth watching tonight.
So bye for now

A moment of Clarity

Here are three cards I've designed since I was last here.
For this first one I used Distress inks and stencils for the background and edged the swirls with a black micron pen. The stamp is by Clarity Stamps and coloured with DI's
For the second one I used the Clarity stamps balloons on a background created using the Clarity cloud stencil and Distress Ink. I stamped the large balloon directly onto the background then stamped and cut another layer to give a rounded 3 dimensional look .I added stickles to the swirls on the balloon but it doesn't show on the photo.
More Clarity stamps used on this next one. Used the Letterbox set for the banner and the ferns and bunnies (well hares really) from another set.
Well that's about it from me today. Hope to see you again  soon.

A selection

Here are a selection of cards that I have created since I was last here
For this double fold card I used Clarity Stamp's Toadstool & Elf coloured with copics.
For this next one I used a Tilda paperkit that I picked up in TK Max at a bargain £1.99
I don't usually do kits but have enjoyed using some lately for a quick craft fix.
Another using the Tilda kit
I used the Indigo Blu Clematis stamp on a Distress ink and stencil background
This last one is using my very favourite JOFY stamps coloured with copics with a distress inked background
A combination of the Clarity and JOFY stamps coloured with copics on a DI background
I have been keeping off the computer lately due to headaches hence the lack of blogging.
So thank you for stopping by my rather neglected blog.
